The Broadford Courier, AND REEDY CREEK TIMES. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1892. The Government Policy. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 23 September 1892

AND REEDY CREEK TIsEs. PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1892. The Government Policy. TIERE is reasonable room to hope that the persistent opposition of an almost united press will have the effect of abating the taxation schemes of the Government. Signs are not wanting that when the Stamp Duties Bill leaves the Lower House it will be shorn of o 1?g. proportion ot the fiscal splendors so dear to the eyes of the Treasurer. Even the Melbourne Age, which has been an uncompromising supporter of the new taxation proposals, has notified the public that the Stamp Act cannot pass in its present form. And the reason assigned is that pressure has been brought to bear upon country members by constituencies which have become alarmed at the prospect that was opening out before them. No doubt there is a great deal of truth in the statement, though we may be per mitted to observe that country mem. hers ought to have seen their way to the performance of the obligations they owe to the el...

Boxiana. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 23 September 1892

Boxialla. YouxG VICTORIA is nothing, if not athletic. America may boast of her Jim Corbetts and her J. L. Sullivans, of her heavy weight championships and her 25,000 dollar, twenty one.round, contests; but we don't do things that way. No, Sir ;not any. We are more progressive-1 may say co-operative. We fight for love and charge no gate money. A desperate encounter of this thoroughly Australian nature, between Emmery Matter son and Jim Ramrod for love and the good of their healths, was brought off, on Satur day last, under the auspices of a well-known football club, whose ground is not within a ten mile radius of Broadford. The sun was gently dropping behind the Western hill tops and all Nature seemed to be at peace, and rest, when these doughty champions the lurid light of battle gleaming in their eyes-stepped into the roped arena. As soon as the rivals faced each other it was seen that Matterson topped his adversary by at least a head, and also had the advan. tage of 3 inches in re...

S'TlH E LIME-KILN CLUI, V AIIOUS conflicting rumours were fylo?i about Paradise Hall for half an hour previous to the opening of the. meeting. Some had it that Brother Gardner had been abducted by two men and carried over to VWindsor for ransom ; others, that Sir Isaac :Walpole had been killed by a Chinaman others still that a package of dynamite had been found in the Hall itself. Something had happened to upset Jack son-street its whole length, but just what it was no one could find out. It was finally reported that Brother Gardner had been ransomed for three dollars and a Waterbury watch, and he put in an appearance just then as if to confirm the story. He went ahead in his usual caln and dignified manner antl opened the meeting, and after everything was in ruintiig order lie stepped to the front and said: " 1y fren's ! 1h'ar dat all sorts o' wild stories her bin flyin' about dis arternoon an' cavenin' consarnin' my.-elf an' odder nliicers.

The Stock Tax. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier — 30 September 1892

The Stock itax. Ai.Ttnoccu suftliient time has not elapsed since the increased stock tax was iimposed to permit of a complete idea being formed of the elect it will have in the way of stimulating the cattle grazing industry of Victoria, euffietnt hIas already been disclosed to show that it will protect the local graziers without brigingg about any large advance in prices. The price of fat stock Ihas certa:nly advanced, as it was explctacd to do. This is due to the fa.t that before the tax was raised compeltition was so keen from thl- other colonies that it di;.couraged the fatten iig of stockI by Victorian farmers, who then turned their attention to dairying. This reduced the local supply and con tributed to the. increased prices. Mouths before the additional duty was impo.se:l, stock agents woere aware of a scarcity of stock in the other colonies antd prdic.td that this fact, together with the droughtt in Quieen.litl and New Sotuith \ale, wouldh prevent stock being s mt forward, ar...

A DARING OLD SOLDIER. 11E recent death of the last of the Waterloo veterans, writes" W. P. B.," reminds me of a scene I witnessed many years ago. When I was a little boy my father took me with him to a public meeting that was Leing held at a tavern a few miles from where we lived at that time. When we arrived at the place we found quite a number of people assembled, and as soon as my father's team was hitched in the shed, they all went into the dining-room of the tavern and discoussed the busolless for which they had been called togEther, while two or three little boys and amyeelf played outside.
